Join us this summer for an outdoor new scripts festival, featuring plays by local playwrights. On Friday, August 6, and Friday, August 13, on the former freight station loading dock at the Winchester Little Theatre, we will offer readings of ten new scripts (five each night). Bring a lawn chair and enjoy an evening (or two!) of live, local theatre!
